First student housing at Nevada State College is set to open this summer

The $33 million Village at Nevada State College will provide living space for 342 students.

Construction of the first on-campus student housing at Nevada State College in Henderson is slated to be completed this summer, the college says.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports that the 342-bed Village at Nevada State College is a $33 million privately financed and built project.

The college, established in 2002, has more than 5,500 students. A lack of campus housing has been a barrier to attracting students.

“The Nevada State College student housing project is a result of working with our students to identify their most critical needs,” President Bart Patterson says. “On campus housing has been proven to help students overcome obstacles and increase success in completing degrees.”

The project has one-, two- and four-bedroom floor plans and can also accommodate students with families, according to the college.

“The housing project will open with all appropriate safety protocols to address COVID-19 concerns,” the college says.

Because of the Covid19 outbreak, the college will offer online and hybrid classes during the fall semester, the college said Monday. A hybrid class is one with some in-person and some online instruction.

The student housing was developed by American Public Development, constructed by Sletten Construction Co. and will be managed by American Campus Communities.

The fully furnished apartments include full kitchens and an in-unit washer and dryer. And the housing complex will have a fitness center, swimming pool and study lounges.

The campus housing will be next to an education building that also is under construction.
